Though we are in a pandemic, Macy’s annual Thanksgiving Day Parade continue to took position. Rather of getting are living this year, the once-a-year event was pre-recorded, and it aired on Thanksgiving Working day for households to get pleasure from at dwelling.
On the other hand, Macy’s caught a minimal heat on Twitter for one of their tweets that was manufactured in reference to one particular of the performances that took position during the parade.
The Zeta Phi Beta Sorority carried out through this year’s parade, and when giving them a shoutout on Twitter, Macy’s referred to the worldwide Traditionally Black sorority as a “diverse dance team.” In a now-deleted tweet, Macy’s claimed, “What’s that seem, you request? Why it’s the varied dance group, Zeta Phi Beta Steppers! Doing a specific regimen, they set together to enable us rejoice this unprecedented calendar year.”
Macy’s later on corrected by themselves and stated in one more tweet, “Glance who just STEPPED matters up. We liked owning @ZPHIBHQ— an worldwide, traditionally Black Sorority —with us at the #MacysParade for their centennial.”
